Description: 1 page, 8.75 x 6.75 inches, on "The White House" letterhead, Washington, D.C., March 27, 1978. Written to Jon Vondracek, Director of the powerful Foreign Policy Association, regarding the passage of the Neutrality Treaty between the United States and the Republic of Panama, in full: "On Thursday, March 16, the United States Senate voted 68 to 32 to approve the Neutrality Treaty between the United States and the Republic of Panama. This important achievement would not have been possible without the great and wonderful support you provided to me as your President. I trust you will accept my deepest thanks for your effort and hope also that I will be able to count on your continued support." One horizontal fold; fine condition.

Comments: This important treaty allowed the United States the permanent right to defend the Panama Canal from any threat that might interfere with its continued neutral service to ships of all nations - with the provision that Panama assume full control of canal operations on Dec. 31, 1999. Carter had great opposition from the likes of Senators Jesse Helms and Strom Thurmond who interpreted the treaty as the United States surrendering a strategic asset to a hostile state.

I just received a book I ordered. I wanted to tell you how pleased I was with the condition of the book and especially how it was meticulously wrapped for shipment. I order a lot of books and your service far exceeds what I normally see from book dealers. I hope in the future I'll be able to find books I need at your book store. Keep up the good work. - Bruce V.
